31. Energy Metrics for Product Assembly Equipment and Processes
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 8/13/2013
Authors: Shaw C Feng, FNU Kumaraguru, Christopher U Brown, Boonserm Kulvatunyou
Abstract: A key factor deciding the capacity to increase the sustainability of final products is the energy efficiency. The energy embodied in a product is an aggregation of all of the energy embodied in the products' components and subsystems, expended throug ...

32. Environmental impact of manufactured products: A measure inspired by nature
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 7/10/2009
Authors: Prabir Sarkar, Rachuri Rachuri, Hyo Won Suh, Kevin W Lyons, Ram D Sriram
Abstract: Environmental impacts of products are generally determined by using criteria or indicators. There are many criteria or indicators available and during design selecting some of them and assigning weight is difficult. As natural systems are considered ...

33. Feature Information Model for Disassembly
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 8/20/2013
Author: Shaw C Feng
Abstract: As sustainability becomes an important issue nowadays, disassembly becomes one of the key processes to turn out-of-service products into new or rebuilt products to save energy and materials. A disassembly process includes many subprocesses, such as s ...

36. IDENTIFYING THE MATERIAL INFORMATION REQUIREMENTS FOR SUSTAINABLE DECISION MAKING
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 8/7/2013
Authors: Anantha Narayanan Narayanan, Paul W Witherell, Jae Hyun Lee, Katherine C Morris, Rachuri Rachuri
Abstract: Materials play a central role in product manufacturing, contributing to each phase of product development in the form of either a component or process material. As the product revolves around materials, so does much of the product information. Mate ...
